I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!

    What’s inspiring me this week? Nature! God’s creation! I just returned to my mountain home after being with my mom for two weeks. I’ve traveled today from the ocean to the peaks! And all of it is beautiful. Including the brand new baby deer I saw at our watering trough tonight. He (she?) and Mommy were just precious!
